We all love to have pets like cats and dogs and we love them more than human beings in most cases. These are the pet animals obviously, and then there are wild animals which you can’t keep in your house but you still like them. Then come the dangerous or say deadly wild animals that everyone is scared of and would prefer to stay away from.
In case you don’t know about them below is a list to make you aware of them:
1. Cape Buffalo.
The sub-Saharan animal is also known as Black Death and it pretty much says about the nature of the animal. This isn’t a ferocious beast until attacked and lives a normal life but when any animal or say hunter tries their luck on them by thinking this is just another food item, they are at their wildest and would literally kill their enemy without a second of thinking. They are known to be the number one in terms of killing hunter animals and that makes them pretty dangerous.
2. Cone Snail.
So, how can the beautiful snails be deadly, right? Well, they have teeth as strong as harpoons and their venom is called as conotoxin and they release such a poison that you’d die within moments! It released the poison in the form that your nervous system is jammed.
3. Golden Poison Dart Frog.
This bright looking frog species live in South America and the only one that can harm humans is golden poison dart frog. This frog carries a poison called batrachotoxin which has the potential of killing 10 people. This frog is as small as 2 inches and is currently endangered because of its amazing golden looks.
4. Box Jellyfish.
This jellyfish has tentacles growing all along it. These tentacles are poisonous and have thousands of stinging cells called nematocysts which if come in contact with any species can attack their nervous system and heart.
This fish is second to the golden dart frog in terms of most poisonous venom which is known as tetrodotoxin. This fish cannot attack you of course but can do even worse if you’re not careful with it, or if you want to eat it without knowing what it is as all the tetrodotoxin which is very poisonous in found in skin, muscle tissue, liver, kidneys, and gonads which are the most edible parts of any regular fish. So, if you wanna eat it you’ll need proper training about how to cut and serve the right parts of this tasty fish.
6. Black Mamba.
How could we talk about deadly animals and poisons without talking about snakes and most venomous of them all being a black mamba. They can grow up to 14 feet long and run at speeds of 12.5Mph making them equally fast. Their venom if not treated instantly can kill you within 20 minutes approx. They are found in South and East Africa.
7. Saltwater Crocodile.
You might have learned that Florida has the scariest alligators but the Indo-Pacific region has one bigger threat and that’s the saltwater crocodile which also likes freshwater so don’t get confused by the name. This alligator unlike others isn’t a lazy one and gets angry very easily. What’s scary is it can shred you to pieces with just one bite. If you ever encounter one stay away!
8. Tsete Fly.
You might be wondering that among these animals what can a fly do but don’t fall for the size, this is as deadly as other animals. A bloodsucking bite from this insect could cause you to sleep disorders and behavioral changes and the worst part, it doesn’t have a proper treatment yet! So, if you catch its bite there’s a very huge chance that you could die if it’s untreated.
Mosquitoes are scary because even if most of their species isn’t dangerous, the ones which are have caused deadly and nearly uncurable disease viruses like the zika virus, dengue etc. And with their population, it’s even worse for us to not take any precautions against them. These less than a millimeter insects kill 700million people on an average every year.
Being the most intelligent life form on earth and also coexisting in billions of population is the scariest thing I guess. Because, imagine what this species of animals can do even if it’s not poisonous or deadly. Humans kill each other more than any other animal on this list so that makes us top of the list. We kill billions of people once a war happens and that’s not how we were meant but how we choose to live. The beware of your species the most as well.
This list might have educated you about some deadliest animals and also taught you to never fall for beautiful cute animals that could kill you in less than minutes.
